An Australian model is appalled at people on Instagram after one of her posts received a modest 14 “likes” on the photo-sharing app. The woman, Cassi Van Den Dungen, followed up the post with a very public rant telling people they “all suck.”
Dungen’s tantrum on Instagram comes a week after fellow Aussie Instagram model Essena O’Neill made headlines for denouncing all social media. Many social media influencers were taken aback and given the awkward task of having to defend their own authenticity.
The latest model breakdown is raising brows and has people questioning models’ relationships with social media. Dungen launched her modeling career after becoming a runner-up on the show “Australia’s Next Top Model” in 2009. Her account, which has 10,000 followers, is filled with modeling pictures and inspirational quotes.
Her two-week-old post with the saying, “Say yes to new adventures,” received 14 likes. After returning home from vacation, Dungen was shocked by the number and proceeded to post a rant with the same picture.
Seeing how her tantrum had caught the attention of the Internet, Dungen followed up with a lengthy explanation on her Facebook page to clarify why people “suck.”
Her Instagram rant post has nearly 2,000 likes and the original post is now up to 287 from 14 likes.
